Start with hard-boiled eggs cooled to room temperature. Stack a few layers of tissue paper, then punch dots with a hole punch. Separate the layered dots. Working in sections, apply a glue stick to a dyed egg, then roll it in the dots or dab them on with a glue-sticked finger. Originally published in the April 2015 issue of FamilyFun magazine.

You'll need to raid your sewing basket to make this Easter basket beauty. Start by cutting a piece of flat lace trim that's just long enough to encircle an egg and place it on a newspaper-lined surface. Apply a coat of acrylic craft paint to the lace with a mini sponge applicator. Working quickly, transfer the lace, paint side up, onto a stack of paper towels and roll the egg lightly over the trim. Set the lace-patterned egg aside to dry completely./
Easter eggs never looked so fierce. To get the glamorous look, trim the edges of a metallic temporary jewelry tattoo. Remove film and place tattoo facedown on a dyed hard-boiled egg. Pat the back of the tattoo with a damp (not wet!) paper towel. Wait a few seconds, then peel off the paper backing. Gently press down on any loose edges, sealing them to the egg's surface. Allow egg to dry completely.
